Our rifle deer hunts have produced 100% shooting opportunity in the
past and we expect this will remain the same due to our excellent deer
populations. We have had a 4 point rule on the ranches we hunt for many
years. Our 4 point rule means that a deer must have 4 visible points on
one side before it can be taken. This is not a State regulation but is
our own rule to insure that we always have quality bucks to hunt. Our
mule deer hunts are mostly a spot and stalk hunt. We do a lot of
glassing until we spot a nice buck. We then put a stalk on the buck
until we get close enough for a good shot. We also hunt food sources
morning and evenings when we are seeing good bucks in the fields.
We have food sources such as alfalfa, grain fields, and rich native
grasses that often concentrate mule deer into open fields morning and
evening. We take mule deer from 20 to 28 inches in width each year.
This is a very enjoyable hunt where you will see lots of animals and
can be very selective. Our whitetail rifle hunt is conducted by hunting large food sources
and by hunting travel routes between feeding and bedding areas. We also
rattle for whitetail when conditions are right. Whitetail hunters will
see a lot of deer and will have a good chance at taking a buck 140
inches or better. On a deer hunt we ask that clients book the hunt as either a mule
deer or a whitetail hunt. This way we can make plans on where to spend
our time according to your desired species. The deer license is good
for either mule deer or whitetail so a client could take either species
if the opportunity presented itself.
This hunt takes place in beautiful country and a hunter can be
successful by walking very little or by walking all day long. In other
words, it can be as physical as you want it to be. We do not "road
hunt" but can set clients in locations where deer will travel through
on a given day.
On this hunt you would arrive on day 1, get
settled into camp and have an evening meal. You would hunt days 2, 3,
4, and 5 and depart on the morning of day 6 after a continental
breakfast. This includes 5 nights lodging, all meals, and 4 days
hunting. If you add antelope to the deer hunt you get an extra night
and an extra days hunting.
If you are looking for an exciting
mule deer or whitetail hunt in spectacular country with a very high
opportunity rate, this is it!!!
